Australia’s Test captain Tim Paine talked about playing against India at the Gabba in the following year. Paine wants to start the Test summer against India at the Gabba in 2020. India is scheduled to tour Australia for the 4 Test matches in the upcoming year.
The Australian captain indirectly targeted Virat Kohli and said that they will ask Virat if he is willing to play at the Gabba or not. “We will certainly try and we will have to run that by Virat Kohli. We will get the answer from him surely at some stage. We will ask Virat and see if we will get his permission to play the Test here (Gabba) and if he is in good mood, we also might ask for a Pink-ball Test match”, he said.
Virat has been in the news recently for talking about the Test venues in the ICC Test Championship. He also demanded more points for away Test wins. Australia has a wonderful Test record at the Gabba but their captain completely denied their dependence on that venue. “We win matches at the Gabba is because we outplay the oppositions, not because of our dependence on the venue”, Paine further added.
